    I really wanted to read Room. I think I’ve got it ordered from the library. And of course I always pay attention to Stephen King’s lists. I loved this one…I’d already read quite a few of them!

      Sandy – my name came up on the hold list for Girl With the Dragon Tattoo on audio when we were in the library, so it expired. 🙁 Had to add my name to the bottom of the list again…

  2. Love love love Jane Austen’s Fight Club! So funny!

    Thank you for the links. Love Shannon Hale – will have to train my husband how to read my stuff.

  5. Thank you for the link! I saw that Jane Austen video too! I wonder if it counts for the Jane Austen book and movie challenges?!!!

    How is your daughter doing?

    This weekend I am reading Love and Summer by William Trevor. It is for my Book Group. It is an Irish love story.

      Elisabeth – thanks for asking! Natalie is doing much, much better. She is still on IV antibiotics – I’m giving them to her at home – but we see the doctor on Tuesday and if all looks good, she’ll have the PIC line removed. She’ll also have her second Remicade treatment for her Crohn’s that day. Nothing’s quite normal yet, but definitely more than it was! And Love and Summer sounds good. 🙂

    I like that The passage and the Unnamed plus the larsson series are on the list!
